Worcester County, MD Consolidates Planning Depts.

Due to economic hardship, the Worcester County, Maryland is proposing to consolidate 3 departments into 1, cutting 11 jobs out of 65, just as new codes are coming online. Environmentalists are concerned.

""It [the consolidation] is just too coincidental with new zoning regulations just being made open to the public. The general public is not happy," said Kathy Phillips, who patrols the coastal bays looking for pollution as the "coastkeeper" for the Assateague Coastal Trust. She noted that more than 350 people showed up at a public comment meeting on the draft of the zoning code on June 2, many of them saying they were worried that the county was straying from its 2006 Comprehensive Plan."
